About this Cook
I have recently completed my PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Connecticut. I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY and could not be happier to be back in town after 5 years of living away. I love to bake and decorate cakes for any occasion (and many times for no occasion at all). Where my passion really lies though, is with my family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti, because I can't mess it up.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Licking the spoon or the beaters when my Mom was baking was/is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen :)

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
Delicious and got rave reviews at Thanksgiving! I made it with store bought pie crusts (still made the top into a lattice, though!) and followed the recipe exactly. I DID have to add more water to the caramel mixture to make it pourable though; I think my heat may have been too high. Everything came out great and I'll definitely make again!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Perfect comfort food! I used 2 completely frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts (making it for 2 of us), 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can cream of celery, and the rest of the liquid was chicken broth (enough to cover everything). I also added a few shakes of Lawry's seasoned salt, black pepper, paprika, parsley flakes, and onion powder (in lieu of chopped onion). Cooked on low for 8 hours, shredded the meat in the broth, added the butter (which I had forgotten), and added 1 can of biscuit dough, with each biscuit torn in half. Turned the heat up to high and left it for another hour and a half or so. Great reheated, will DEFINITELY make again.
